The solar car built by the Petroleum Institute was unveiled on Thursday in the lead-up to the Abu Dhabi Solar Challenge next month.

University teams, from across the world, will compete in the four-day event to see which car can finish the 1,200km route in the shortest time.

Qualifications and time trials will take place on January 15 at Yas Marina Circuit. The next day, cars will speed through the heart of the capital and head toward Abu Dhabi’s desert region.

On the final leg of the challenge, January 19, teams will drive back to the city centre, crossing the finish line at the First Gulf Bank Arena near Zayed Sports City.
